The defending champion Warriors are the last undefeated team in the league and they are off to the best start since the 2002-2003 season when the Mavs won their first 14 games. Golden State is a 6.5-point road favorite facing a Clippers’ team that snapped their 2-game losing streak in their last game.
One of the main reasons the red-hot Warriors are the rather big road betting favorite is that the Clippers will be without the injured starting G combo of J.J. Reddick and Chris Paul
In their last games the Clippers beat the Detroit Pistons 101-96 and the Warriors beat the Toronto Raptors 115-110.
This season the Clippers are 5-1 at home and the Warriors are 5-0 on the road.
These 2 teams met earlier in the season at Golden State where the Warriors beat the Clippers 112-108.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors are firing on all cylinders in their perfect start and they are the highest scoring team in the league and rank a decent 11th in opponents’ points allowed.
Reigning MVP Stephen Curry ranks 1st in the NBA averaging 33.7 ppg and he is shooting over 52% from the field. He and Klay Thomson lead a potent G combo that will be tough for the shorthanded Clippers to deal with.
The Warriors were outrebounded and committed 20 turnovers in the win over the Raptors, but the offense bailed them out scoring 115 points in the win.
The 4-point win earlier this season over the Clippers was the smallest margin of victory by the Warriors this season.
The Clippers are getting it done on the offensive end of the floor ranking 3rd in the league in scoring, but they only rank 24th in opponents’ points allowed.
Blake Griffin has been playing well as of late and Jamaal Crawford, who started for Reddick in the last game, is coming off a season high 37 points. These 2 guys and Austin Rivers, who should start for Paul, have to take up the scoring slack.
DeAndre Jordan is averaging a double-double this season and he has to play well in the paint, especially hitting the boards and being a rim-protector.
The Clippers have had 4 days off to get ready for this big Western Conference match up.
